Why do you always comment on your own things? Aren't you busy copy and pasting articles over at Saiyan Island?

JD_Shadow1971d ago

So...we can't comment on the stories we post now?

And aren't personal attacks unallowed on here?

Reibooi1972d ago

I would say no to this simply because it would mean they are making the mistake of white washing the entire cast(which shocks no one)

Noctis Aftermath1971d ago

They should AT LEAST have some hot japanese chick as the main female character, i mean, there are heaps of hot japanese actors, no need to white wash the movie, everyone loves hot asians.

BinaryMind1971d ago (Edited 1971d ago )

I don't mind what they are doing to the cast, just don't mess up the script (they will).

Great, a white chick staring in a Japanese movie.

Deadpool6161971d ago

Yep. They're basically turning something Japanese into something Western. This movie isn't just a slap in the face, it's also a kick in the crotch.

tayz1971d ago

i heard they will make "Neo Tokyo" into "Neo Manhattan"

koga881971d ago

Yeah I heard the same. Probably just to help create a more familiar setting for the audience. Probably also makes things easier for the crew as far as costs go as well.

Pozzle1971d ago

Ugh. Once again, Hollywood is whitewashing a non-white movie.

For once it would be nice to see Japanese protagonists in a blockbuster movie who aren't just there to be martial artists or stereotypical 'Asian nerds'. :(

Lord_Sloth1971d ago

I don't mind that they're turning the characters into Americans in an American city but why Keira Knightley? I just don't like her.
